Despite the cold weather there were plenty of heaters and appropriate social distancing. Another outstanding experience at Francesca’s
The Restaurant was a very nice one and the Guy who took care of Us was very nice and attentive . Highly recommended by both, my husband and I. Coconut 🥥 Cake! Outstanding!
Always great food and service!
Always a great go to in town!
Dinner was excellent! Thank you so much for a wonderful evening!
Again a fabulous meal at Francesca’s. Everything was fresh and healthy, very COVID conscious and safe. A Lake Forest gem.
The chef cooked the salmon exactly as requested especially because the waiter reiterated my rare request.
We were outside. Plenty of heaters - no overhead protection in case of rain. Good ambiance and food. We had the calamari and carpaccio- always tasty. This is one of our go-to places.
Outstanding service with no waiting. Not noisey and easy to talk. Very delicious food.....
Wonderful food with unparalleled service! Will make your favorite even if not on the menu! Fantastic experience!
Waited too long to be seated for a 6pm reservation (checked in before 6pm) but once seated, it was fabulous. Food excellent, service excellent and a beautiful early Fall evening.
My sister is going back on chemo next week so we’re trying to get some good meals in before she loses her appetite again..
Very good outside dining venu. Food and service were excellent
Great value excellent food
The meal we had was delicious. The waiter went above and beyond to provide great service. Thanks!
Good food but server did not engage whatsoever. He never asked if we wanted a 2nd cocktail which was frustrating as it was my husband's bday and we would have. We have had him before with the same issues. Masks are tough; I know. But it is definitely a loss of potential revenue for the restaurant. But was nice to receive a complimentary profiterole dessert in his honor. Thanks for that.
They have made a great outdoor dinning area. Food is still amazing. Even new things on the menu. Always happy to dine here.
Excellent as always
Great food. Consistently good
The kitchen was slow and our food was quite delayed
We go there quite often and our experience has been great. Food delicious and outside dining delightful.
Food and service were exceptional
Just wonderful fresh made authentic yummy food, nice and attentive staff, lovely ambiance!
I ordered the chicken thighs which we’re supposed to be boneless per our server but were not. They happily replaced the dish with boneless ones and ultimately didn’t charge me for them and for that I’m very appreciative. However the dish was barely edible and the chicken was tough and rubbery. The meatball appetizer was delicious. Unfortunately several of my past meals have been hit or miss which sadly differs from the past several years of consistently excellent dining experiences
Regular diners here, we had a bad night as my guest had a terrible stomach reaction after our dinner. So disappointed I doubt I’ll return for a while however I’m putting in a huge grain of salt; we are fond of this restaurant bc it’s local, nearby & have had terrific meals there previously.
We are living in truly challenging times & the staff & servers are doing their very best they can given the state restrictions for COVID-19.
Great neighborhood outdoor dining service always excellent great cocktails and wine choices
Great waitress good size portions
The wait staff was extremely polite and caring.
My salmon was cooked exactly as ordered. They made my husband’s pasta with his preferred noodle.
Dependable quality and service. Francesca's Intimo does a commendable job with extended patio service during Covid distancing.
Food and service were great. Be careful about outdoor dining. Table in sun on hot day is unpleasant.
Metal chairs were very uncomfortable and they needed cushions to sit on.
I took a friiend oout for Sunday brunch however the menu did not include any brunch items
We had a fabulous meal and when the skies turned grey and we needed to move to a table with an umbrella they were very accommodating and made it happen. We LOVE Francescas Intimo it is one of our favorite go to places for a marvelous meal
Great outdoor lunch spot. Nice breeze off of the lake. Service could have been better. I had to call inside the restaurant to get our server to check on us. We needed cheese, spoons, water. They were not as available as they have been in the past. Food was plentiful and excellent
Food was excellent.
patio seating working out so well ... staff were very mindful of Covid precautions.
The food was excellent, the service was great & the ambiance was perfect! Going back in August for another birthday celebration.
The restaurant manager was not very professional, he sat in the section next to us with his dinner and treated the personnel very poorly, loudly and disturbing clients.
Our waitress was great and very gracious
Sat out on the patio and had great food and service!
